  • 1. Chapter 1- Static engineering systems 1.3 Torsion in circular shafts 1.3.1 theory of torsion and its assumptions (eg determination of shear stress, shear strain, shear modulus) 1.3.2 distribution of shear stress and angle of twist in solid and hollow circular section shafts 1
  • 2. Torsional loads on circular shafts • Interested in stresses and strains of circular shafts subjected to twisting couples or torques • Turbine exerts torque T on the shaft • Shaft transmits the torque to the generator133 2
  • 3. Assumptions in torsion
  • 4. Shear strain• The value of shear stress τ is expressed by d Tr T Tr 16 T τ= τ= J = 24 = πd π d3 J 32• The shear strain γ is given by where θ=angle of twist or degree of rotation L= length of the specimen
  • 5. Torque twist diagram• The elastic properties in torsion can be obtained by using the torque at the proportional limit where the shear stress is calculated corresponding to the twisting moment• The torsional elastic limit or yield strength can be obtained from testing a tubular specimen since the stress gradient are practically eliminated.
  • 6. Twisting moment• Consider a cylindrical bar subjected to a torsional moment at one end.• The twisting moment is resisted by shear stresses set up in the cross section of the bar. (zero at centre, max at surface)• Twisting moment is the sum of shear torques over the cross section• Since is the polar moment of inertia of the area with respect to the axis of the bar
  • 7. • The maximum shear stress at the surface of the bar is• For a tubular specimen, the shear stress on the outer surface is Where D1=Outside diameter of tube D2=Inside diameter of tube• The modulus of elasticity in shear G or the modulus of rigidity is as follows:

Problem SOLUTION: • Apply a static equilibrium analysis on the two shafts to find a relationship between TCD and T0 • Apply a kinematic analysis to relate the angular rotations of the gears • Find the maximum allowable torqueTwo solid steel shafts are connected on each shaft – choose the smallestby gears.

  • 11. Design of Transmission Shafts• Principal transmission shaft • Determine torque applied to shaft at performance specifications are: specified power and speed, ­ power P = Tω = 2πfT ­ speed P P T= = ω 2πf• Designer must select shaft material and cross­section to • Find shaft cross­section which will not meet performance specifications exceed the maximum allowable without exceeding allowable shearing stress, shearing stress.

  • 12. Stress concentrations • The derivation of the torsion formula, Ta τ max = J assumed a circular shaft with uniform cross­section loaded through rigid end plates. • The use of flange couplings, gears and pulleys attached to shafts by keys in keyways, and cross­section discontinuities can cause stress concentrations • Experimental or numerically determined concentration factors are applied as Ta τ max = K J167 13

  • 14. • Multiplying the previous equation by the shear modulus, r Gγ = Gγ max a From Hooke’s Law, τ = Gγ , so a r r τ = τ max a The shearing stress varies linearly with the J = 1 π a4 2 radial position in the section. a1 a2 r (J = 1 π a2 − a14 2 4 )
  • 15. Angle of twist • From observation, the angle of twist of the shaft is proportional to the applied torque and to the shaft length. θ ∝T θ ∝L • When subjected to torsion, every cross­section of a circular shaft remains plane and θ undistorted. • Cross­sections for hollow and solid circular shafts remain plain and undistorted because a circular shaft is axisymmetric. • Cross­sections of noncircular (non­ axisymmetric) shafts are distorted when subjected to torsion.136 16
